In the mid 1990s, as the web was first taking off, a small company called Ceneca Communications produced one of the first authoring tools for HTML web pages with a WYSIWYG interface.

This a brochure for the Evans & Sutherland Multi-Picture system, a top-of-the-line graphics display of the very late 1970s. These were calligraphic displays, where the CRT beam traced out the lines of the graphic, rather than the typical "raster scan" displays where pixels are scanned out top to bottom. Despite the "cost-effective" claim, these were quite expensive, with installations easily running to six figures in 1980 dollars.

This is issues 3, 6, 7, and 9-12 of the Oregon Software Technical Newsletter (originally called Pascal Newsletter ). These issues are from 1981 through 1987. Oregon Software was a spinoff from the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. It started in the late '70s, selling Pascal compilers for the DEC PDP-11, VAX, 68000 and other computers. The company folded around 1991, due to the fading popularity of the Pascal language and the difficulty of competing with free offerings from the GNU project....

If you worked as a software engineer at Apple Computer (or Taligent, a spin-off company) between 1988 - 1992, there's some chance your name may be on these charts. These reflected the people behind Apple's system software efforts of that era, including Mac OS System 7 and the ill-fated Pink project (which later became Taligent).

The Mechanical Universe  was a video series presenting basic concepts in high school and college level physics, created in the late 1980s. It featured many animated segments illustrating how the underlying mathematics corresponded to the physical concepts. These segments were created by James F. Blinn at the Jet Propulsion Lab. At the time, it represented one of the largest computer animation projects attempted by an individual. This document, created for a SIGGRAPH tutorial, discusses the...

This a brochure advertising the Sol-20 computer systems and associated accessories. The Sol-20 was a microcomputer system introduced by Processor Technology Corp in the late 1970s. While the Sol-20 was popular at the time, Processor Technology didn't update the design to keep up with changing technology. That, combined with mishandling their dealer relations, forced the company to close in 1979.
